Always Room for Another Gizmo!
As my last automata project was nearing completion my brother passed on a Pachinko Machine that had been hiding in his basement for numerous years. It was a fixture in his house in the seventies and amused his three children endlessly. Video games were just getting stated back then so it was quite a novelty!
With a little TLC and cleaning it now has been resurrected to former glory and Pachinko balls are clanging around again! You can never have enough Gizmos around!

Wow, what a crazy coincidence ! I have the same pachinko machine ! Bought in the 70ies at a progressive furniture dealer in Bonn as a used machine. No problems until today.. In your land you have some experts and also a dealer, but nothing in Germany. Pachinko is here very unknown. and so it is a really unique piece.and for some guests a big attraction.

Hi Falk. It is a some world! I had been surfing the web looking for the same model as the one I have to no avail and then suddenly your note arrives from over the ocean!
